Day 1: Ciudad Bolívar – Kavac
Flight departs in the morning from Ciudad Bolívar above the Angel Fall to the small Indian village of Kavac which Indian rotundas (Churuatas) are settled in a picturesque way in front of the dark, rugged rocks of the Auyan-Tepui. In the afternoon we wander into the Kavac-ravine having to swim the last part to get to the waterfall which waters fall in a great din into the grotto. Overnight stay in the village in a Churuata in hammocks.
Day 2: Kavac – Guarayaca
Early in the morning we are heading to Auyán-tepui hike (6 hours in the whole) from river to river. There is the possibility to go swimming and to refresh yourselves. Our way leads us through small Indian settlements. We pass the Okono-river and overcome the slope to the Campo Gurayaca. Here we pitch our camp besides a river.
Day 3: Ascent
At first hiking (today for 7 hours) across the savannah and then through dense jungle surrounding the Auyán-tepui. After the ascent we walk through a thicket of metre tall bushes towards our place to spend the night, El Penon. El Penon is a huge boulder under which there is enough space for all of us including our sleeping bags.
Day 4: Ascent to the Auyán-tepui
Our path leads us through a stony countryside and through a wild network of roots up to the steep wall of the table mountain. Along this wall we get to a huge rift leading us onto the table mountain (mesa). Climbing above big rocks we reach the edge of the plateau. Noon, we rest at the rock El Libertador. Continuing our travel across the table mountain we reach the rock El Oso after ~8 hours under which we can roll out our sleeping bags.
Day 5: Campo Elcho
Hiking from El Oso across huge plates of rock down to a little tributary of the Churn. We continue into the valley of the Churun river where we again meet the jungle. After 4 hours, at noon, arrival in Campo Lecho. Who wants may accompany our guide to the Boca de Dragon where the Churun seeps away in the Auyán-tepui and comes back into sight after 500 metres.
Day 6: Back to El Oso
We hike back to El Oso. In the afternoon there is time to explore the surrounding of El Oso.
Day 7: El Penon
Today we continue travelling downhill to El Penon for ~6 hours where we can take another refreshing bath under the waterfall.
Day 8: Descent to Kavac
Passing through El Danto we wander back to Guarayaca where we rest at noon. In the afternoon, we cross the Rió Ocone heading to Kavac reaching it after 9 hours altogether. The path leads us directly along the foot of the Auyán-tepui.
Day 9: Kavac – Ciudad Bolívar
Breakfast and relaxing in Kavac. In the afternoon leaves our return flight from Kavac to Ciudad Bolívar (in the case we were not able to fly above the Angel Fall during the flight to Kavac, we try this during the return flight).
